Have you ever heard about the Philippines? The country is located at the very eastern edge of Asia, home to more than 7,000 islands.
From pristine beaches and marvelous natural wonders to interesting historic sites and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, the Philippines packs many exciting things for travelers to see and do.
Here are two of the finest destinations in the Philippines:
TAGAYTAY CITY, CAVITE, LUZON
If you are tired of being in crowded downtowns then, this is the right time to have some leisure time off at the marvelous spot of Tagaytay City in Cavite, a popular holiday destination located south of Manila.
It’s an ideal place for leisure and recreation activities such as picnics, horseback riding, zipline riding, and catching the picturesque view of Taal Volcano Island surrounded by Taal Lake. If you are lucky you might see the World’s Smallest Active Volcano.
MACTAN, CEBU CITY, VISAYAS
When you feel bored with other beaches, I recommend you choose this marvelous spot in the Philippines.
To have a great leisure time that includes extreme activities and rest, the city of Cebu is not just an awesome base and jump-off point to explore the Philippines – it is a worthy destination in itself as well.
Here, you will get a sweet taste of Philippine history and art with its collection of historic monuments like Casa Gorordo, Fort San Pedro, Magellan’s Cross and the LapuLapu Monument. You can totally enjoy your life here.
